Comprehensive in scope and enlivened with personal anecdotes, The Crooked Path brings together observations and insights from Brian Hawker’s two decades as an educator in Northwestern Ontario. Within his first year, he realized that his training program could not realistically achieve its goals. He was training people who, with few exceptions, brought complex personal issues and health-related problems to the classroom. Like many non-Indigenous specialists working in the North, Brian became aware that the sheer number of problems, the jurisdictional wrangling over who was responsible for solving them and the history of past failures was almost overwhelming. In the process, he realized he had been totally unprepared for the work he had been asked to do. This is the book he would have needed and that other professionals will find uniquely valuable.
His book reviews the history of how things came to be the way they are and points critically to the gridlock between the federal system and the majority of Canada’s 634 First Nations. And how First Nations are unable to contribute to their own communities due to the failure of the current system to understand, honour, update and implement historic agreements. In it Brian shows how uncoordinated federal, provincial, and First Nations levels of jurisdiction have historically created obstacles that make it impossible for Indigenous children to grow up with the fundamental supports they need.

La Beauté Brute de son Boisé

Ce conte illustré trace l’histoire d’un petit boisé niché dans une vallée secrète située dans les Appalaches. C’est dans cet environnement sauvage que la conteuse veut intégrer sa collection de sculptures créée il y a déjà plusieurs années.
Dans son univers fantaisiste, Jeanne Poulin explore le chaos de la forêt où habitent la faune, les arbres et les pierres. Souvent perturbé par les intempéries, son boisé doit être réhabilité au gré des saisons, tâche qu’elle accomplie en respectant l’esthétique naturel de cet écosystème accidenté. Et enfin, une décennie plus tard, elle réussit à faire renaître ce qu’elle appelle la beauté brute de son boisé!
Pour concevoir ses sculptures, elle a valorisé les formes bizarres, étranges ou asymétriques suggérées par la racine des arbres, tout en écartant les mythes et les faux-paraître qui leur auraient imposé une autre apparence.
Ce livre séduira les amateurs d’arts visuels et les amants de la nature. C’est une histoire vraie contée par cette dame des bois qui lutte toujours en faveur des mal-aimés contre la tyrannie des stéréotypes.
